  • Full-time: Ireland 46-7 Italy

    80
  • Jackson cannot add the extra two points but that's that in Dublin, with O'Driscoll man-of-the-match.

    79
  • TRY, IRELAND, MCGRATH. 46-7. Power, power, power.

    78
  • CONVERSION, IRELAND, JACKSON. 41-7. More points.

    77
  • TRY, IRELAND, MCFADDEN. 39-7. On the angle, over dives the replacement for what should be seven.

    77
  • Jordi Murphy replaces Henry for the closing stages.

    74
  • So ten minutes remaining here at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin as replacement scrum-half Edoardo Gori puts in, 25 metres from the tryline. Nothing comes of that passage though as Ireland look to counter.

    71
  • CONVERSION, IRELAND, JACKSON. 34-7. Excellent kick.

    70
  • TRY, IRELAND, CRONIN. 32-7. There's another try for Ireland as the replacement hooker puts his head down for the left corner. Well taken by the sub.

    69
  • Ireland won't want to see their lead decrease as they know points could mean prizes after next week's final round. Still plenty in this game.

    67
  • Orquera and Bortolami leave the field now, replaced by Tomasso Allan and Antonio Pavanello. Sexton also goes off as on comes Ulster's Paddy Jackson at ten.

    64
  • Sexton misses the touchline conversion but there are massive cheers now as O'Driscoll leaves the field to a standing ovation. Special scenes here.

    61
  • TRY, IRELAND, SEXTON. 27-7. O'Driscoll is involved again as his offload finds R Kearney before Sexton runs it in over in the left-hand corner. Superb.

    60
  • Some concern for centre O'Driscoll as he goes down following a break up to the Italian 22, but he is fine to continue. Cue cheers from the Irish fans.

    58
  • Mike Ross is coming off so on comes Martin Moore while Michele Rizzo and Manoa Vosawai take to the Dublin field for De Marchi and Derbyshire in blue.

    57
  • The conversion is missed by Sexton as Healy hobbles off with Best also departing, the duo replaced by Jack McGrath and Sean Cronin respectively.

    54
  • TRY, IRELAND, HEALY. 22-7. The pressure finally tells and it's the power of Healy that does it. Leinster's loosehead is over on the right side.

    53
  • Ireland are returning with interest now and it's O'Connell leading the charge before Heaslip gets involved. Now it is Trimble brought down ten out.

    52
  • Superb defence from Italy though as they force the scrum turnover from a collapsed maul. No further score then since the half-time break in Dublin.

    50
  • A bit of off the ball stuff to mention as O'Connell and Bortolami are involved. However, the offence is going against Tebaldi for holding O'Connell around the neck so it's a penalty that goes to the corner.
